“You couldn't wish for nicer hosts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Luckily we had arranged to be met at the airport by the hotel as I doubt we would have found it otherwise. Nestled between the very narrow paths of the medina, you have to complete the last bit of the journey by foot. That wasn't a problem for us but worth considering if you have mobility problems or heavy awkward luggage.

The host was very welcoming and helpful. We had a traditional Morrocan dinner which was delicious and plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble.

We had a very large room just of the court yard with a double and a single bed. All very traditional. The space was amazing. Plenty of plug sockets and a good wifi signal. The shower room was basic but adequate. There was a step up to the shower room which again might be an issue for some people.

One thing you need to be aware of though, is the calling for prayers. If you are a light sleeper, this location is probably not suitable for you as the noise is quite loud. We heard it at 4am and 6am. This will be an issue with any of the Riads in the medina.

Anyway the hosts really made it for us. They were superb and very accomodating

Clean, comfortable hotel. Room was provided with bathroom (no TV or fridge) which had hot water; bathroom separated from bedroom by curtain only so not much privacy. Breakfast was rather poor, as it was in most other hotels/riads in this country. We stayed there for 3 nights but did not sample their dinner.

We stayed totally 6 days in Marrakech and had a wonderful and relaxing time in the Riad Jomana. The rooms are very clean and spacious. There was always hot water. The roof rerrasse was just great after long walks in the souks - we could hang around, enjoyed the marvellous view and drank tea and coffee offered from the Riad. The service was absolutely perfect. In fact, it couldn't have been better! The staff is very helpful, friendly and reliable. Not only is the location fantastic, but also the dinner. We ate twice at the Riad and we just loved the delicious couscous and the tajine. Should we ever visit Marrakech again, we would stay at this wonderful Riad. We can't imagine a better accommodation in Marrakech!

We loved this place, very romantic, charming moroccan decoration in the riad and in the room, cozy room, bathroom (open to bedroom), staff went way above and beyond to be friendly and help us :)
Very well located in an authentic "neighborhood".

My parents and I stayed at Riad Jomana last month and we had a very nice time. My dad is usually particular about his food and he loved the food at the riad...the cook was very good. The host, Yassine, was very nice and accommodating. Our room was on the first floor with a king size bed and a twin bed....it was a really big room...the bathroom sink water got the floor wet but that was not a problem for us since the floor had a drain. We were suppose to stay a night in the Sahara desert but we had to change plans. The riad was already book that night but the staff helped us find another place to stay and had our same room ready for us the next day for another stay. Also, my luggage was lost by the airline and the riad was helpful in letting me call the airport several times to track down my luggage. They are very nice there and the host even guided us to the Medina and recommended a good restaurant. The riad was close to the medina square and to the taxi stops. We would recommend staying at Riad Jomana! We had many adventures in Marrakesh and met new friends!

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 7 nights. We organised an airport transfer that picked us up promptly from the airport and were very glad we did as we would have had trouble finding it. However the following day the staff showed us how to get to the main square and gave us a map of the city as well as answering the many questions we had about our stay. The rooms were huge, beautifully decorated and well worth the money. We booked suite 2 but were upgraded to the larger suite on our first night which was a nice surprise. The location is perfect for all the major attractions including the main square and the souks, but just far enough out that it wasn't too noisy. There are prayer calls, but we weren't bothered by them at all (if anything they added to our stay). Breakfast is a mix of Moroccan cakes/pastries with butter and jam, tea/coffee, juice and yawmy yoghurt. There is some variety from day to day. The highlight was definitely the dinner which we had at the riad 3 times, delicious and lots of it too! The staff are all extremely friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a good one. Alll in all top marks!!
